Bursts of cobalt blue wake up winter wardrobes.
The Bright-Blue Sweaters at Pringle of Scotland (a favorite of David Beckham and Claudia Schiffer) are what first turned us on to cobalt. And while we usually associate classic knitwear with anything cozy—like roaring fires or lazy, hot cocoa-soaked winter days—the electric hue of these particular garments had us thinking otherwise (a shot of espresso followed by extreme snowboarding?). The cobalt effect seems to have the uncanny ability to shock the winter soul out of submission, and the same could be said of the numerous runway shows (Milly, Chanel, Kenzo) that ran heavy with the hue. (Did the models have a bit more spring in their step or was it just our imagination?) Either way, the next time you need a winter wake-up, forgo the coffee and head straight to the closet.
